Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8806) libhadoop.so: search java.library.path when calling dlopen
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2012 00:45:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8806?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13455495#comment-13455495
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-8806:
------------------------------------------

bq.  However, snappy can't be loaded from this directory unless LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set to
include this directory

Or, IIRC, dlopen will look in the shared libraries run path (-rpath for those using GNU LD,
-R for just about everyone else).  This is the preferred way to deal with this outside of
Java.  See also the $ORIGIN 'macro' to make the path dynamic based upon the executable location.
There is no reason to really hard-code any paths or set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in modern linkers
due to these features unless you are absolutely doing something crazy.

> libhadoop calls {{dlopen}} to load {{libsnappy.so}} and {{libz.so}}.  These libraries
can be bundled in the {{$HADOOP_ROOT/lib/native}} directory.  For example, the {{-Dbundle.snappy}}
build option copies {{libsnappy.so}} to this directory.  However, snappy can't be loaded from
this directory unless {{LD_LIBRARY_PATH}} is set to include this directory.
> Should we also search {{java.library.path}} when loading these libraries?
